Hollywood blockbuster returns to the big screen

RELIVE the magic of Jurassic Park on the big screen, accompanied by a live performance from musicians of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra at a special screening in Brisbane this April.

As the movie plays in HD, some of Queensland's best musicians will perform composer John Williams' iconic score live to the picture.

Directed by Steven Spielberg and featuring some of Hollywood's biggest names, the 1993 blockbuster tells the story of a new theme park which has been populated by dinosaurs.

The advancements in scientific technology enabled billionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) to bring the prehistoric creatures back from extinction by using prehistoric DNA.

He invites palaeontologists Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), as well as mathematician Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) to his park, which he assures is safe to visit.

But it quickly becomes a race of survival as a number of ferocious predators break loose and go on the hunt.

Two screenings will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday, April 27, at 2pm and 7.30pm.

Tickets start at $59 per person.
